Educators & Families

Administrators and Teachers
With lead responsibility for building-wide and classroom responsibilities, school administrators and teachers are happy to have health professionals in the school to address the health information and health services needs of students. Educators, however, can always use more resources to help with their work. This section includes education-targeted grant alerts as well as hand-outs for parents and students.

Parents
Parents are the experts on what their children need. The Parents' Resource Center provides two types of information: Learn Now -- a web portal that provides valuable links to parent-friendly resources on child and adolescent health issues, and Act Now -- a guide written by CHHCS to help parents assess health-related services and programs at their child's schools. For families who speak a language other than English in the home, additional resources are found in the Children of Immigrants and Refugees section of this web site.

Kids
Today’s kids are increasingly health-aware. Looking for good ideas for yourself or a friend on getting active and eating healthy? Check here! We also have links to best sites for information about relationships, dealing with bullies, and the business of living.
